Domestic noir at its best. Readers will devour this stunning page-turner about the disintegration of a marriage as grief, jealousy, betrayal and murder destroy the facade of the perfect literary couple. New York Times bestselling author J.T. Ellison takes her exceptional writing to a new level with this breakout novel. 

They built a life on lies 

Sutton and Ethan Montclair's idyllic life is not as it appears. They seem made for each other, but the truth is ugly. Consumed by professional and personal betrayals and financial woes, the two both love and hate each other. As tensions mount, Sutton disappears, leaving behind a note saying not to look for her. 

Ethan finds himself the target of vicious gossip as friends, family and the media speculate on what really happened to Sutton Montclair. As the police investigate, the lies the couple have been spinning for years quickly unravel. Is Ethan a killer? Is he being set up? Did Sutton hate him enough to kill the child she never wanted and then herself? The path to the answers is full of twists that will leave the reader breathless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes You Think The story is told in two different parts: first part is Ethan's point of view, and part two is the wife, Sutton, point of view. As you read through, you will question who's telling the truth, who's lying, who's guilty, who's innocent. Just when you think something will happen, you get new information what makes you reevaluate the whole situation. Great read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Similar to Gone Girl I found the first half of this book to be very similar to Gone Girl, it delves into the minds of both the husband and wife and you are certain that their marriage is not all that it seems to be, to each other and to outsiders. However the second half takes on a different direction, was totally not expecting the ending. I did find the ending wrapped up too quickly and was left with a few unanswered questions but overall it was a great twist and kept me guessing as to what was going on between this couple.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gone Girl with a twist I couldn't help imagining this book was going to be a copy of Gone Girl ... the first half of the book leads you to believe the plot is heading in that direction but there is a twist to this plotline which goes in a very different direction! Good, fast paced read. I do think the ending was wrapped up a little quickly and neatly however I recommend it for an intriguing read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Domestic noir Lie to Me is New York Time best selling author J.T. Ellison's newest novel. This was a first read of this author for me. The publisher's blurbs describe Lie to Me as domestic noir and I think that's a pretty apt description. Ethan and Sutton are 'the' beautiful couple. Both have successfully published books, they own a gorgeous home and live the lifestyle they both want. And up front, that's what people see and believe. But, a series of tragedies and unfortunate events befall the couple - their young son dies, the words dry up for Ethan, Sutton is attacked online through social media, their finances take a dive and life behind closed doors takes a violent turn. Sutton decides enough is enough. She leaves a note for Ethan asking him not to look for her - and disappears. But has she voluntarily left or has Ethan killed her? Lie to Me opens with a puzzling prologue from an unknown author. It more than hints at dark deeds and destruction. This person appears in italicized entries throughout the book. I was sure I knew who was 'speaking', but was proven wrong. The first part of the book is from Ethan's viewpoint after Sutton goes missing. I have to say - he's a bit of an ***. More than a bit. His actions, thoughts and dialogue all made me dislike him intensely. Is it any wonder Sutton left? But Ellison toys with the reader. She planted enough alternatives and doubts in mind that I really had no idea if Sutton was gone or dead. Ellison employs one of my favourite writing devices, telling the story through a now and then technique. It was the 'then' chapters that had me believing I would know what was actually the truth. And......I was wrong. Part two belongs to Sutton's voice. Her take on things is very different from Ethan's. And my thoughts and conclusions changed again. There was no way to predict where the novel would go. IMO, the 'whodunit' must be taken with a few grains of salt, as I found it a bit far fetched. But, it was inventive and unpredictable and kept me guessing. I really liked the young female cop who investigates Sutton's disappearance. I wonder if Ellison would consider bringing her back in another book? Lie to Me was a fun porch read for me.
